    TC Helicon Perform-VK Mic Stand Mount Vocal Processor

    Sounds to Make You Stand Out

    If you’re serious about singing, you’ll find that sounding your best is about more than talent or vocal technique. It’s about taking what is unique about your voice and using the right tools to make it stand out – whether you’re live at a venue, a radio session, recording at home, or uploading to YouTube, SoundCloud, Facebook, Instagram, or any of your other favorite social channels.

    PERFORM-VK lets you focus entirely on your love of singing and keyboard while it automatically handles the polish and production values. What formerly required a skilled producer or a dedicated sound engineer can now be set up in seconds, interact with your keyboard, and offer the professional vocal sound that is key to an unforgettable performance.

    Harmonize Your Sound

    Whether you use audio or MIDI from your keyboard, our vocal effects engine captures your chord information and creates up to two voices of real time harmony to accompany you. No musical theory required! If you like to get more complex vocal output, MIDI note driven harmony is also available with direct control of up to 8 simultaneous harmony voices.

    Simplicity is Key

    PERFORM-VK pairs perfectly with your keyboard or stage piano to give you stand out vocal effects, mixing and USB multi-track audio in one small, easy to use unit.

    Creative Control at Your Fingertips

    PERFORM-VK allows you to take control of your sound, giving you the power to simulate a physical space with REVERB or put it on repeat with ECHO simply by hitting a button.

    In the Studio or on Stage

    When it’s time to hit the studio, PERFORM-VK’s 4 in, 8 out USB audio capability gives you all the flexibility you need to create great recordings in no time. Simultaneously capture dry and wet versions of your vocals, along with harmony voices and your keyboard audio. You can go straight from songwriting to production in much less time.

    Polish Your Performance

    • Add instant clarity with the TONE button. Adaptive EQ, compression, gating and de-ess provide you with professionally polished vocals that ensure you always cut through the mix.
    • Turn on Anti-Feedback and your PERFROM-VK will be on the prowl for pesky speaker squealing, knocking it out quickly if it does occur.
    • The PITCH button provides a helping hand by pushing you to the nearest half-note with subtle pitch-correction.

    Set and Forget

    PERFORM-VK removes much of the complexity involved with most audio gear. In addition to Tone and Anti-Feedback the Automatic Microphone Input Gain means that setup is as straightforward as plugging in a mic and holding the SET button while you sing. Boom, ready to rock. It even clips onto your mic stand right where you need it.

    Expansion Companion

    PERFORM-VK comes with onboard, studio-quality Harmony, Echo, and Reverb effects, plus you can use our “beaming” app to send presets containing other effects, such as Transducer (megaphone/distortion), HardTune, Doubling, and much more right from your smartphone or tablet.

    Make It a Hit

    Our beamed presets contain a feature called HIT that allows you toggle multiple effects on and off simultaneously. Start with a tasty reverb, then add a killer harmony and megaphone voice with the touch of one button? PERFORM-VK can do that and more!

    VoiceSupport

    PERFORM-VK will evolve with you. VoiceSupport, our free desktop app, gives you the latest firmware updates and maintains your personal database of presets that you have beamed. All you need is a Mac or Windows computer with a USB input.

    Practice Without a Mic

    When you're not beaming presets to it, the embedded RoomSenseTM mic doubles as a handy vocal input for headphone sessions when the ideas come faster than getting up and plugging in your regular mic.

    Hands On

    Remote control your sounds with a mic engineered for the sonic realities of modern vocal performance. Add the TC HELICON MP-75 or MP-76 microphone and use the groundbreaking Mic Control buttons to roam the stage freely.

    Hands Off

    While PERFORM-VK is designed for a hands-on experience, there may be times when you're playing an instrument or otherwise keeping those fingers occupied. For these occassions, you can add a Switch-3 or Switch-6 accessory pedal to let your feet take control.

    Your PERFORM-VK Needs Software

    FAQ

    When will I get my refund?

    Once your return is received by us, your refund will typically be processed within 10-15 business days. It typically takes a few business days for all credit card refunds to be processed and reflected on your statement. This means it will take a few extra days for your refund to show in your account after your return is processed. Store credit refunds will be given in the form of a e-gift card which will be available for immediate use after it is emailed to you. Please note: All actual shipping fees paid by Prymaxe will be deducted from your refund. This includes orders that qualified for free or subsidized shipping. Return shipping must be paid by the buyer. If you received a defective or incorrect item, please see the next question.  

    What if I receive a defective or incorrect item?

    If a product is defective upon arrival, or the wrong item was received, all the shipping fees will be covered by us and we will give you a store-credit refund on the original order. For defective items, Prymaxe reserves the right to refuse the return if we determine the reason for the unit failing was not covered under the warranty (i.e., if the item was damaged due to user fault or error). If you feel your item was damaged in shipping, please take plenty of pictures of the damaged box and item and immediately contact us so we can open a claim with the shipping company.

    Please be very diligent with testing your defective item. Be sure to try other guitars, power supplies, cables, and amps. We also request that you take a video of the item not working. If we receive your item, test it, and find it to be working, we will give you a refund minus the cost of shipping both ways.

     

    When must I ship my return?

    Your return must be received by us within 45 days of the original purchase date for store credit, or postmarked by 14 days for a refund to the original purchase method (PayPal, credit card, etc). This means you must ship your return with enough time for us to receive the package within the deadline. If it does not arrive within 45 days, we will refuse the package. If you feel you sent the package within a reasonable time frame, but it arrived late due to the shipping company’s error, please immediately contact us to make an appeal before we refuse the package.

    What if I pre-ordered an item?

    If a pre-ordered item arrives outside of the 45 day window from when you ordered it, you will have 7 days from the arrival date to send it back for store credit.

    Why was my package refused?

    There are a number of reasons your package could be refused by us, including:

    • It was a new/demo item received outside of the 45-day window
    • It was a clearance, accessory, or other non-returnable item
    • The package is missing items that were included in the original shipment
    • The item shows signs of wear
    • The original product box was damaged or written on/the item was packaged in a separate shipping box
